Undoubtedly, I am happy.  But sometimes I question what happiness really is.  Media has us romanticizing life and pictures happiness as perfection.  Perfection?

So I did some soul searching and realized that happiness isn’t about sunshine and rainbows ALL the time.   It’s about CHOOSING to be happy even when things are less than perfect.

What made me think about this was a few things actually.  One thing for sure was a camming burn out.  When you work long hours and hustle with little to no results, you can become exhausted and burned out.  Or maybe you reach your desired results and fix one situation but another one comes up.  This has been the case lately.  So I thought to myself, am I UNHAPPY?

The answer is no.  I dislike different things in life but ultimately it doesn’t affect my “happiness.”  So I addressed some of the things I dislike and made an effort to resolve my discontent.

I decided to change up my cam space and make it more pleasing for me and my mood.  Bright colors, plushy animals, glittery pillows and furry blankets.  It worked.

 

Happiness is accepting that life isn’t perfect, and you will have moments of doubt, sadness, hurt, and all kinds of other negative emotions.  Take the good with the bad and make the best of it.  You don’t have to let it defeat you, just find a way to fix it and move on!

Good luck in your journey to stay happy or find your happiness!
